The End
by The Doors
Doors Music Company ASCAP

This is the end, beautiful friend.
This is the end, my only friend. The end
of our elaborate plans. The end
of everything that stands, the end.
No safety or surprise, the end.
I'll never look into your eyes again.

Can you picture what will be
so limitless and free.
Desperately in need
of some stranger's hand
in a desperate land.

Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain,
and all the children are insane;
all the children are insane
waiting for the summer rain.

There's danger on the edge of town
Ride the King's highway, baby
Wierd scenes inside the goldmine;
Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake.
Ride the snake, to the lake, 
The ancient lake, baby
The snake he's long, seven miles
Ride the snake
He's old
And his skin is cold
The west is the best.
The west is the best.
Get here and we'll do the rest
The blue bus is calling us
The blue bus is calling us
Driver, where you takin' us?


Ode to a grasshopper...
I think I'll open a little shop.
A little place where they sell things.
And I think I'll call it grasshopper.
And I'll put a big green grasshopper out there.
Wanna see my grasshopper momma?
Lookin' real good.
Oh! I blew it, its a moth.
Well, thats all right, he ain't got long to go,
So we'll forgive him.


The killer awoke before dawn. He put his boots on.
He took a face from the ancient gallery and he
Walked on down the hall.
He went into the room where his sister lived. And then he.
Paid a visit to his brother. And then he, he
Walked on down the hall.
And he came to a door. And he looked inside.

"Father." "Yes son." "I want to kill you."
"Mother, I want to f..."

Come on baby, take a chance with us,
Come on baby, take a chance with us,
Come on baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus...

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free, but you'll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies 
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end.
